The Sydney Exhibition Centre, Glebe Island, will house this year's Australasian Gaming Expo from 11-13 August hosted by Gaming Technologies Association (GTA).
"Now in its 26th year, the Australasian Gaming Expo is the signature event for the gaming and hospitality industry and this year promises to be bigger and brighter than ever,” said GTA CEO, Ross Ferrar.
Featuring more than 180 exhibitors across 15,600 square metres, the AGE is the biggest event of its type in Australia with a wide range of companies showcasing the world’s best gaming and related equipment and services.
This year, there will be world-first product releases, entirely new concepts and three days of opportunities to network with hospitality and gaming directors. Industry suppliers will converge to showcase their best products and services including over 750 of the latest poker machines, fresh from development.
Last year, the show celebrated its 25th birthday with exhibitor space sold out a month before the scheduled dates. Aristocrat reported to Australian Hotelier it was "proud of its presence at AGE 2014" and the 1200 coffees and 600 pies it served to customers.
